Do You Love Bad Guys the Best?

Here’s another libretto that spilled out of my soon-to-be-seven-year-old son. He sang this one last weekend while puttering around his bedroom. To me, it sounds sort of like something written in 1200 BCE and then translated in the 1950s.
I should also mention that I told him I’d be posting this and asked him what he wanted his “Vortex” name to be. (My daughter is codename “Shonny Vortex,” my brother adopted “Jake Vortex” when he played sax on a couple of tracks a while back.) So anyways, he considered “Fire Vortex” and “Ice Vortex” before settling on “Power Vortex.”
Who am I to argue with a boy named “Power”?
Do You Love Bad Guys the Best?
by Power Vortex
Let us live and win the battle.
Let us lie under the stars.
God, why is this happening?
You say no to everything.
Please let us win the battle.
So when will you say yes?
Then we’ll win the battle.
Or do you love bad guys the best?
Is it for the good and the bad?
Is it for the bad and the good?

    It may be redundant redundant, but I say:

    Wow. Great. I better work harder on my soon-to-be-six-year-old son if I’m going to get poems like this out of him by the time he is seven
